More on Joe Carter:

This Canadian Sports icon was drafted 2nd overall by the Chicago Cubs in 1981 after being named the Sporting NewsCollege Baseball player of the year. Over a 16 year MLB career he amassed over 2000 hits and almost 400 home runs playing for six teams including the Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, San Diego Padres, Toronto Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles and San Francisco Giants. He was a 5-Time All-Star, 2-Time Silver Slugger and 2-Time World Series Champion and will forever  be remembered for his famous game winning walk-off home run in Game 6 to win the World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays in 1993. He is a member of the Toronto Blue Jays Level of Excellence and was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003

More on Robbie Alomar:

Roberto is the only baseball player inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame as a Toronto Blue Jay™. His career 17-year career, included 12-time All-Star appearances and 10 Gold Glove Awards.

For most of his career, the only time the word “second” appeared in the same sentence as Roberto Alomar was when someone was describing his position in the field. At the plate, with the leather or in the final standings, Alomar was usually on top.

Born Feb. 5, 1968 in Ponce, Puerto Rico, Alomar had baseball in his blood. His father, Sandy Alomar Sr., was an All-Star second baseman in his 15-year major league career. Like his father, Roberto played second, threw right-handed and switch-hit. Alomar’s brother, Sandy, Jr., also made it to the big leagues as a catcher.

At 18, Roberto Alomar signed with the San Diego Padres and won the California League batting title in his second year in the minors with a .346 batting average. By 1988, he was with the parent club, making a splash with his defense and speed and finishing fifth in National League Rookie of the Year voting. He earned his first All-Star selection in 1990.

Following that season, Alomar was traded to Toronto – where his offense took off. Alomar raised his average over .300, helping the Blue Jays to back-to-back World Series titles in 1992-1993 while finishing in third in the AL batting title race in 1993. He hit a combined .354 in four postseason series in those two championship seasons.

“Everybody can see the skills on the field,” said teammate Dave Winfield, himself a Hall of Famer. “He’s acrobatic, flamboyant, he’s got his style.”

Following the 1995 season, Alomar signed with the Baltimore Orioles. Forming a Hall of Fame double-play combination with Cal Ripken Jr., helped his team get back to the playoffs – advancing to the ALCS in 1996 and 1997. Following the 1998 season, Alomar signed with the Cleveland Indians and played with his brother Sandy for the first time.

“He reminds me of some of the great players that I’ve played with, who seem like they write their own script,” said Davey Johnson, who managed Alomar with the Orioles. “Frank Robinson’s one, Henry Aaron was the other.”

Alomar was traded to the Mets in 2002 before later stops with the White Sox and Diamondbacks. He retired after the 2004 season. In 17 major league seasons, Alomar tallied 2,724 hits, 210 home runs, 1,134 RBI, a .300 batting average and .984 fielding percentage. He made 12 consecutive All-Star appearances.
